Winged Sentries— These five eagles weather a snow storm with perfect dignity and grace. The birds of prey often have to endure snow in the northern climates where they thrive. Eagles have no problem flying, nesting, or perching in snow, as the eagles in this picture are doing.
The snow will continue falling for many months— luckily eagles can simply soar above the towering snowbanks. These eagles are taking advantage of some downed logs on the Chilkat River bed to rise out of the snow and have a good vantage point to search for their next Salmon meal.
